I believe a can bring a lot of value to the position and enjoy the daily responsibilities. I feel is the right fit for me. I found the post on the city webpage which linked my to a a goverment jobs website, I applied there. I have seen the job posted on a couple of other sites as well.
I understand that the best way to land the job is networking but I don't know anybody who works there, I don't even know anyone living on that city, that is one of my concerns. The city has a directory with the human resources manager's name, phone number and email address. Should I reach out to her to express my interest on the job? I don't know what to say to get right effect.
Another concerns is my lack of goverment experience. I don't see it as a problem but I'm afraid the may disqualify me because of that. I didn't address that on my cover letter. I don't know if that is something I should mention. If that is something they don't care much I don't want to point it out. Should I applied on any of the other sites and address that on my cover letter?
I appreciate any advise I can get to improve my chances to get hired. Thanks!
